There are new firmware versions available for the X-Pro1 and X-E1.
Autofocus does seem a little quicker.

One of the things I find so refreshing, helpful and useful is the frequency at which Fuji responds to user requests with firmware updates that are actually useful. I can't remember ever getting more than one firmware update per model of Nikon I ever had (maybe there might have been two with the D70s, but I can't be sure of that). It's not as though the Nikons couldn't have used them, either - the D3 in particular. There were a whole bunch of niggles I had with that camera.
I'll second the comment about the focus selector - I have an RRS L bracket to which my shoulder strap is also connected on the AF button side of the camera, and getting that to select the focus bracket selector then use the arrows on the other side of the camera made it a fumbling 2-handed job. With the down arrow firing the selector up it behaves just like the D3s did, only of course one can select gocus areas right out to the edges instead of that massive group of brackets in the middle of the D3s viewfinder with nothing at all in the outer one third.
Full marks Fuji. This camera just gets better and better to use.

I agree - it's very cool that Fuji continues to improve existing models. It gives me confidence that my investment in the Fuji X Series is a good move. Also agree that the AF focus selector change is a good one. I will use that a lot. Looking forward to the July FW release also, especially the focus peaking. While not a precision focusing tool (at least on the NEX cameras where I've used it before), it is nonetheless very useful.
